The Space

Spacious One Bed Room with Excellent view of Bangkok's Famous Chao Praya River. Luxury apartment in the State Tower.
Fully equipped kitchen, separate living room and Bed Room with Balcony.

Located 400 meters from the Saphan Taksin BTS Sky Train Station and the River Pier which has direct transit to Grand Palace and the famous temples around Bangkok.

Located in silom road, surrounded by restaurants and bangkok culture. Road side foods, fresh vegetables and fruits from the nearest markets even Robinson Shopping Mall.

Most of our customer like the privacy and most of all the balcony with good breeze and excellent view of the chao praya river.

This building was in the movie "The Hangover 2".
Sky Bar on the 64th floor and the a world class restaurant sirroco where you can dine along the magnificent of the Bangkok City Skyline.

The best way to get to the building from the airport is by taking a taxi, we are about 35 - 40 minutes from the airport! considering Bangkok's traffic, it can take longer! Taxi meters cost about 400 -450 baht to get here including toll way or if you do not want any hassle in finding cabs at the busy airport. You can contact me for airport pick up service by taxi for Baht 700 per trip.

  • Классное кондо со всем необходимым - микроволновка, чайник, холодильник, два кондиционера. И главное балкон с шикарным видом на реку, по которой плавают всякие кораблики и длинные лодки. Я приехал ранним утром, Кевин оперативно решил вопрос с заселением, через 10 минут пока курил и сходил в 7/11 номер уже был готов, помощник Кевина пришел, все показал и оставил ключи. Наверху на 52 и 64 этажах ресторан и бар с панорамным видом на Бангкок - дороговато, сходить стоит, готовят много всего, очень вкусно, очень высокий уровень обслуживания. Главный вход находится на Silom Road - оживленной улицей с кучей ресторанчиков, магазинчиков, салонов массажа, баров и тд, есть где погулять. В общем все понравилось, все классно, всем советую!) Кевину спасибо)

  • Kev was very promt on his answers and resolved some of our questions, we did not meet him personally but the check-in was smooth and it was very nice to see 2 bootles of watter supplied into the fridge everyday. The also cleaned the flat and made the bed on a dayly basis.
    Other positive aspect is the amazing view from the room, seeing the sunset and sunrise was an unique experience.
    On the other side they still have a croacrach issue, 'fortunatelly' they are the small type ones but we got them in our suitcases, bathroom and entering trough the door. The bin are is just outside the flat and even they ask people to take the bins to the ground floor we saw some bin bags a couple of days, we noticed that is the nest of the infestation, it will take serious measurements to get rid of them. We did not lefy any food outside the fridge and we did not wanted to cook due to this, so, if you want an amazing view and are not really bother about crocroaches then go for it, just for a couple of nights might be tolerable.
    That area of the building (oposite to the Lebua hotel) is been left out and the corridors, doors and general status looks out of date and needing a refurbishment.
    Conclusion , if it was not because of the view I would not recomend to stay there.
    Kev is a good host though.

    thank you for the review and apologies about the problem, the cause is in the building maintenance which they've been solving it. It has subsided since your stay date and we are now focused on solving it permanently. Sorry for the trouble.

  • We were staying at 45th floor unit, the stay was great, good location, good river view and from the balcony, we could see the beautiful Asiatique Sky in the night, everything was great.

    The only issue we found was that there were numbers of small cockroaches coming into the unit from the corridor, or otherwise, it would have been perfect.
    The unit itself was clean though.

    thank you for, the problems have been fixed by the maintenance of the building already. All is well and back to normal.

  • We were excited about staying at State Tower but were quite disappointed. Right after arrival we found out that the rubbish from the whole floor is stored right in front of the apartment. And is not protected or stored in bins – just trash bags thrown directly on the floor which is the system we don’t understand. It smells a lot and is attracting cockroaches. The problem is that cockroaches enter also into the apartment and we found some when we entered. There are traps in the apartment but this doesn’t help.

    We called Kevin and told him about this problem and they provided spray against cockroaches. We were using it twice a day but cockroaches kept coming even after putting the towel in front of the door. This caused that we were not feeling comfortable at any moment of the stay and tried to stay out of the apartment as much as possible.

    The air conditioning in the bedroom is not connected to anything and the water is falling directly on the floor in the bedroom. This is quite annoying during the night as the drops are quite noisy. And as the floor is wooden it got destroyed by the water and you have to be careful when stepping on it.

    The truth is that the views are great and you are staying at State Tower but for the same price we stayed in the building right across the river which was way much better.

    Response from Kevin:

    sorry for the inconveniences you experienced, as of now they have removed the thrash bins outside the hallway after a lot of request. So no more cockroaches, sorry for the trouble once again.

  • The location of this unit could NOT be better. It is 6-7 minutes walk from the Shangri-la, MRT, and boat dock. It is also located right off the expressway, making it easy and fast to get a taxi to the airport, Chatuchak market, etc. The unit gets a lot of natural light, has gorgeous views of the river and Grand Palace, and is very spacious for 1-2 people. When it worked, the wireless was very fast. As a host, Kevin was extremely responsive. I had a few problems in the unit, and when I contacted him about these problems Kevin responded right away and was generally able to resolve the issues.
    The downsides of this unit are that it is smoker-friendly, which I did not realize when I had booked it (although it does indicate this in the description-- I just had not noticed it). When I walked in, the smell of smoke was quite strong, although after a few days it had dissipated somewhat. The building, being older and in city center, has a roach problem. The first night, I saw 5 small roaches. I contacted Kevin about this, and over the next several days he had someone install small roach traps, which seemed to work. By the last day, I only saw 1 or 2 per day. Another issue was that the Internet was down on three occasions. I am not sure if this was a larger problem with the Internet provider, or if it was a problem with Kevin's connection. It was a big problem for me because I did not have a local SIM card, so was relying on the wireless for all of my communication, including my communication with Kevin. To report the problem, I had to go down to the main lobby and have them call Kevin's contacts. I did this twice. The final issue is that housekeeping took my towels once and did not replace them, and also that they did not replenish the toilet paper, so I ran out on the last night!
    On the whole, the positives outweighed the negatives, and I would stay in this unit again.

  • L'appartement de Kevin est très bien situé pour prendre le bateau et visiter les temples de la vieille ville.
    L'appartement est au 45 ème étage avec balcon, il possède une très belle vue sur la rivière Chao Phraya.

  • We just stayed for the second time, last time in the 50th floor apartment and again a month later in the 45th floor apartment. Kevin has been an AMAZING host, helping us navigate transportation, early and late check ins and storing our surfboard for a month while we toured around Thailand and Laos. A life saver, he's gone far beyond host expectations and we are grateful!

    Both apartments are VERY spacious with big comfortable bed, closet, living area w/ strong wifi, tv, kitchen, eating area and bathroom. Almost too much space for us! The balcony overlooks the river with sweeping views and one night we even had what felt like our own private fireworks show! (I think for Chinese New Year). A/C makes temp perfect and lots of natural light.

    Another benefit is the location. Easy walk to the river for taxi to anywhere you want to go and all you have to say is "State Tower" to any tuk tuk or taxi and they know how to get you home. The State Tower hotel is easily accessible from the lobby if you want to go to the famous rooftop bar (be prepared to pay 500 bhat for a drink) but the view is exceptional.

    I will definitely recommend these apartments and stay whenever we come to Bangkok.

    THANK YOU Kevin for storing our bag and for being such a great host!

  • A great place to stay. Right in the center of Bangkok - only a few minutes away from the river and tons of Thai street food (if you're on the look out for that sort of thing) on the doorstep.
    We didn't meet Kevin but it was easy to get hold of him using whatsapp. And he was very helpful. The apartment was even cleaned every day and new towels given. The apartment is exactly as in the photos. We would go back.
